TP-Link TL-MR3020 video review


The TP-Link TL-MR3020 is a portable 3G/3.75G wireless N router. And we like it: watch our TP-Link TL-MR3020 video review to find out why.

At just 74x67x22mm, the TP-Link TL-MR3020 is tiny and lightweight - in fact, it made our USB dongle look positively chunky. The ability to power it over USB makes it simple to throw into a bag and take a sharable internet connection wherever you go, although we'd prefer to have seen a built-in battery for true portability.

The white-and-grey plastic chassis feels rather cheap, and that's because it is: the TP-Link has a £53 RRP but is available from just £26.90 online, so it pays to shop around. However, TP-Link's generous three-year warranty provides some reassurance.

On one side is a USB 2.0 port for connecting a dongle, and on another is a 3G/WISP/AP mode switch, Mini-USB for power, and fast ethernet for hooking up either a WAN or LAN as a failover. Alternatively, you can use the TP-Link as a WAN router, with 3G as the backup. See also: Group test: what's the best modem router?

On the front of the TL-MR3020 is a WPS button that lets you invoke WPA2 security with a single touch, plus an LED bar that confirms whether the device is switched on, data is being transferred, wireless is enabled, and the ethernet status. See also: Group test: what's the best wireless router?
